Bits & Bytes: Visionary + Visionaire

April 28th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

amvisionaire
Visionaire‘s next issue will be a tribute to Alexander McQueen. Here’s the preview for it on Visionaireworld. Going to have to fork out the $295 for this one. (Image from Visionaireworld)

Fashion news:

A lot of you may know Dusan Reljin‘s name from his wonderful work as a photographer. But did you know he just designed a sunglasses collection for Selima; featured here on Style.com.

Anna Dello Russo is the best! See Anna’s life story in Japanese manga format. I still can’t decide 100% if it is really her blog but it’s so over the top, it probably is.

This incredible fashion shoot by Simon Procter for Vs Magazine is given some good lovin’ by Sans Artifice.

Photography news:

Mert & Marcus‘ ex assistant chats to Love Magazine. Besides being talented; Angelo Pennetta is very, very funny.

The next photographer duo? The German duo of Billy und Hells are worth a look.

Miscellaneous:

Many of you know that Tara Subkoff is recovering from brain cancer. Read her interview with Harper’s Bazaar about her journey.

I’ve met Justin Gelband and he most definitely is intense. I see why Victoria’s Secret stars and Sports Illustrated beauties go to him to be trained.

I loved American Elle growing up in the 80′s. It was joyful, inclusive and still aspirational. Jezebel compares the 1986 May issue with this month’s issue.

Did Anna Wintour really have a brief affair with Bob Marley in the 70′s? Oh Anna you naughty girl, you.

You gotta love Jezebel playing detective. Is Kimora Lee Simmons head really on Daria Werbowy’s body?

Modeling news:

Ohhhh yeaaaahhh! It’s about time. Models edge out celebrities for fashion ads. WWD lists some of the major houses for fall.

Models Myf Shepherd (who is in art school) and Rachel Rutt are doing anonymous interviews with fashion insiders for MUTT; should be quite interesting.

Casting director Julia Samersova talks to MSN about the new faces of tomorrow (including Estee Lauder faces Liu and Constance).

Love Magazine takes a “boob break” and has casting director Michelle Lee pick her favorite new “androgynous” girls.

Speaking of boobs, here are Jonathan Leder’s pics/video of his new work for Jacques. His work always seem tasteful and respectful to women; some consider him the anti Terry.

Hmmm, what are those birds diving towards? Click here to see more polaroids of great new face Johannes Niermann. Johannes walked Burberry, Zegna, Prada and Viktor & Rolf this past January.

Into The Groove

August 5th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

In the years since Tom Ford’s departure Gucci may have turned down the heat but they’ve amped up the rock n’ roll cool of their campaign imagery. This season’s Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin extravaganza focuses on the kind of club scene every one wants to be a part of. Cool kids like Christian Brylle, Freja Beha Erichsen, Myf Shepherd, Dree Hemingway, Anja Rubik, Natasha Poly and Abbey Lee Kershaw rock it out on the dancefloor while high fashion MVPs Jacquetta Wheeler, Raquel Zimmermann and Jamie Bochert play it cool. Just what song do you think is playing in the background of all this madness?

Campaign Contributions

July 15th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The F/W campaigns continue to emerge and with each new ad there is something different to take in. Myf Shepherd and Olga Sherer don fedoras for Sonia Rykiel’s girlish campaign while Anja Rubik reprises her role as face of Giuseppe Zanotti in the Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin helmed campaign. The Eastern bloc power trio of Sasha Pivovarova, Anna Selezneva and Natasha Poly take on Phi this season in a series of  Steven Meisel images that looks very supermodel. Last but certainly not least, Jessica Stam‘s feline beauty shines for Fendi. Karl Lagerfelds smoky shots of Stam looking elegant are an unexpected treat.

Which campaigns have stood out for you this season?

Karma Chameleon

May 29th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Myf Shepherd is on a roll! The breakout star shows just how versatile she is with a Vogue cover and a stellar editorial in Numero. For Vogue Australia Myf’s natural charm shines through as she models cool local label, Romance Was Born with a friendly girl next door grin on her face. For Numero Myf flips the script and goes in a wildly different direction playing a geisha girl for Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello, the transformation is astonishing and Myf all but disappears into the role.
